Born to a poor aristrocratic family, Reinhard von Lohengramm was a military genius and political idealist. He overthrew the 500 year old Goldenbaum Dynasty and established himself as the new emperor, or Kaiser. Reinhard began a number of reforms, remodeling the Galactic Empire into a nation that was, in the words of Yang Wenli, "not by the people, but for the people." Reinhard von Lohengramm was born on May 6th, in the 776th year of the Space Era. He died on the 26th of July, 801, at the age of 25.
